Consider calling on the Lord before calling on your friends.
Calling on the Lord before calling on your friend, ensures that something will be done. There are times when we get so weighed down with the issues of life and call on a friend to talk things out. This could be both good and bad. Good when we can actually have a breakthrough and get off the phone feeling better. Bad, when our worries are magnified and we end up worrying even more.
However, there is a guarantee that comes with calling on the Lord.
Psalms 145: 18-19
The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. He grants the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cries for help and rescues them.
That brings so much comfort to my heart. To know that when I call on the Lord, he is close to me. That when I call on the Lord he hears me and he takes action!
There is no one like the Lord.
How many times have you shared that you don’t know how you are going to pay the next wave of bills only for them to say that they are praying for you. I mean… it’s good to have people who are praying for you, but sometimes you need more than just prayer, you need actions!
The Lord says that when we call him and tell him all about our troubles, he not only hears us, but he will rescue us! He’s a God who puts in work for those who fear him!
Do you fear the Lord?
Do you know that the Lord is sovereign and all powerful? What does knowing that do for you and your life and the way that you live? It should have a huge effect on the way that you do things. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Lord and he will hear you and rescue you!
I need rescuing! Do you?
